Consultation over slimmed down Yeovil housing plans

Revised plans to build hundreds rather than thousands of new homes near Yeovil are to go out to consultation.

South Somerset District Council had wanted to build 2,500 houses at East Coker over the next 15 years.

But following recommendations from a planning inspector, the authority is now proposing to build 800 houses at East Coker and 765 at Upper Mudford.

Councillors agreed on Thursday to consult the public on the changed proposals.

The revised plan, with representations from the consultation, will then be submitted to a government inspector in 2014.
